If building mobile apps, you need to discuss which mobile platforms to support:
Apple IOS, Android and Windows Phone.

Also, if you don't have any in house mobile programmers, I would consider outsourcing it.

Right questions.
a) Keep it simple to use.
b) Give good, useful and up to date information with links to important areas
c) Provide some interaction for some things, although this depends on what your company provides.
e) work out a draft layout of what is would a user see on the mobile, so you can talk about whether what is needed or not needed, and what should go where.
